Living with Consequences

When my family was young, we had a dear pastor who once preached a sermon entitled, “You Have to Live in the House You Paint.” He told the story of his neighbor, who was going for dark red siding on his house, but when it dried it was a purply-fuschia color. And this homeowner had to live with it—at least for a while anyway—because it was too big a job to do it over immediately, and of course, there was great expense involved (a price to pay). There is always a consequence. Sometimes it’s temporary; sometimes it’s long-lasting.
